AWAKE. A Dream From Standing Rock
A Feature-length Documentary

The film tells the dramatic story of the historic #NODAPL native-led peaceful resistance at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, which captured the world's attention as one of the biggest stories of 2016. Tens of thousands of activists traveled to North Dakota from all over the world to take a stand alongside the "water protectors"-- activists opposing construction of the 3.7 billion dollar Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). The pipeline is proposed to transport fracked oil from North Dakota's Bakken oil fields directly underneath the Missouri River on sovereign Lakota land, the only water source for the Standing Rock reservation and the drinking water source for 17 million Americans downstream.

The fatality rate of oil field jobs in seven times greater than the national average. GASWORK investigates worker safety and chemical risk. It follows Charlotte Bevins in her fight for CJ’s law, a bill to protect workers, named for her brother CJ Bevins, who died at a drilling site.

The Sky is Pink
Documentary Short

Josh Fox takes the possibility of New York state passing legislation to allow fracking as the starting point to revisit some related issues and go into greater depth on others. A powerful point he makes comes back to the safety of the fracking process. Fox cites documents from the industry itself that show how the cement around the wells sometimes fails to contain the chemicals. As a result, these chemicals end up in the water supply, contaminating it and posing dangers to those receiving it in their homes and drinking it. But The Sky Is Pink shows how these environmental and policy issues are more complicated than even these basic issues. Facts alone fail to explain the complicated processes and impacts of hydraulic fracturing. The science — grounded in process, logic, and reason — gets called into question, not to mention the motivated interests of industry, government, and advocacy. And even ad hominem attacks come into play.

GASLAND
A Feature-length Documentary

The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudia Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.
